Our Conference Focus

Let's Live View

Phoenix LiveView has given engineers the power to create scalable, real-time, fluid web applications entirely in Elixir itself. It's incredibly popular inside the Elixir community and quickly gaining traction within the greater tech community.

This year, we'll feature 12 fantastic talks focusing entirely on the learnings, struggles, successes, and overall experiences of working with LiveView and the PETAL (Phoenix, Elixir, TailwindCSS, AlpineJS, LiveView) stack. If you love LiveView or are just interested in getting started, join us as we take a deep dive into the wide world of LiveView!

COVID-19 Precautions

While the COVID vaccine rollout is going well, it's a top priority that the Big Elixir both feels safe and is actually safe for all attendees. As such, our event will strictly adhere to all local health guidelines and laws, including those set by the CDC, the city, and our venue.

However, if you have concerns or questions, please feel free to talk to us anytime. We are dedicated to being as open and transparent as possible to ensure all attendees have a fun and safe conference experience!

Code of Conduct

Part of ensuring that The Big Elixir conference is a good experience for all attendees is the enforcement of a strong code of conduct. All attendees, speakers, sponsors, and volunteers at The Big Elixir are required to agree with the following code of conduct. Organizers will strongly enforce this code throughout the event and all attendees must agree to this policy when purchasing tickets. We expect cooperation from all participants to help ensure a safe and inclusive environment for everybody.

The Quick Version

The Big Elixir is dedicated to providing a harassment-free conference experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, religion (or lack thereof), or technology choices. We do not tolerate harassment of conference participants in any form. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate for any conference venue, including talks, workshops, parties, Twitter, and other online media. The Big Elixir participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the conference without a refund at the discretion of the conference organizers.

The Less Quick Version

Harassment includes offensive verbal comments related to gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, religion, technology choices, sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention.

Sponsors are also subject to the anti-harassment policy. In particular, sponsors should not use sexualized images, activities, or other material. Booth staff (including volunteers) should not use sexualized clothing/uniforms/costumes, or otherwise create a sexualized environment.

Venue & Location

Le Petit Theatre

The Big Elixir is very proud to be working with New Orleans’s oldest operating playhouse, Le Petit Theatre Du Vieux Carre. Really, we could not have asked for a better venue.

Since 1922, Le Petit has been located just off of Jackson Square, in the French Quarter and has entertained thousands of audience members in a wide array of dramas, comedies, and musicals.

Le Petit offers an amazing stage, world-class acoustics, and a great A/V team to not only ensure a great conference but also a comfortable and cozy one for all. The theatre includes ADA accessible seats, spread out between the orchestra and balcony levels.

The Hyatt Centric French Quarter is a New Orleans luxury hotel located in the historic French Quarter adjacent to Bourbon Street in New Orleans. This historic hotel offers smoke-free guestrooms, plush bedding, modern in-room amenities, and balconies that overlook the historic French Quarter, gorgeously landscaped courtyards and New Orleans' famous Bourbon Street.


Attendees of The Big Elixir will receive a special rate of $229 (plus taxes and fees) per night.
